I just unlinked my Facebook account from G+ since I was seeing an increase in random friend requests. I guess this is a sign that these two worlds don't really mix well.

‎Peter Menzel* meets Michael Pollan. Photographic ethnography on eating through the contents of people's refrigerators.

* If you haven't read Material World, Peter Menzel asked families from around the world to take everything out of their house and assemble it on their front porch. It's awesome.
Mark Menjivar (b. 1980) is a photographer and lives in San Antonio, TX.

I'm not comfortable with the monotonic transformation of data into information - I can never go back to the raw eggs once I have knowledge!
